If you are new to Medicare, you may not be familiar with the Medicare Open Enrollment window. Each year, enrollment begins on October 15th and goes through December 7th. While there are other events which may qualify one to sign up outside of the open enrollment period, this period of time is when many Americans either enroll in Medicare for the first time, or re-enroll to change their options. So, what do you need to know?
First, if you are new to Medicare, it’s very important to understand the process of enrolling so that your coverage gets started on time. There is a great deal of information available on official government websites, but some still may find the process unclear or confusing. If you are unsure of anything, it may be a good idea to get assistance. At Milz Health Group, we’ve made ourselves experts on the process for that very reason, and we’d be happy to assist.
Secondly, it’s important to realize that plans, coverage, and prescription coverage can change from year to year. Don’t assume that, because you had certain coverage last year, that it will be exactly the same for the upcoming year. And if there is something that hasn’t been covered in the past, it may now be covered or covered differently. We never want to see anyone miss out on the best coverage they can have.
Finally, the last big item to take into consideration is supplemental coverage. Especially if you’re enrolling for the first time, it’s critical to make sure you Medicare coverage covers what you need it to cover and what you expect it to cover.
